TONIGHT: Scattered showers and t-storms will continue with storms that produce heavy downpours, frequent lightning and gusty winds. There is a lower threat of damaging wind of 58 mph or greater or an isolated tornado. The severe threat will decrease with time. With heavy downpours, localized flooding is possible, especially in low lying areas.
WEDNESDAY: Lingering showers and a few storms mainly east of HWY 63 in the morning will end and we’ll cool down through the day. Temperatures will start off in the mid to upper 60s, cooling into the upper 50s by 7 PM. It will also be breezy with westerly winds at 15-20 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
EXTENDED: Wednesday night will be chilly with lows near 40 by early Thursday morning as the cooler air settles in. Temperatures will only reach the upper 50s Thursday under mostly sunny skies. More rain is possible as we head into the close of the week, as two systems will track into the region. System number one will arrive Friday morning through afternoon as an upper level disturbance from Colorado moves through. This will not only bring light to moderate rain showers Friday, but will also keep temperatures cool. System number 2 looks to arrive Saturday night into Sunday. This comes as the remnants of Hurricane Sergio from the Pacific track inland with impacts felt across the Plains and into the Midwest. The best chance of rain this weekend is south of I-70 with lower rain chances north. Highs this weekend will be slightly warmer, reaching near 60 Saturday but cooling back into the 50s Sunday.
